In Brackets (2021)

DESIGNER: Sam Cornwell
MATERIAL: Black Walnut Cube, Yellowheart Brackets
RELEASE DATE: 1.25.2021
EDITION: 80 Copies Released
SIZE: 3" x 3" x 3"

In Brackets is an interlocking cube with a twist! While moderate in difficulty, the solution is so much fun you'll find yourself solving it over and over.

Last released in 2009, this was Sam's IPP Design Competition Entry that same year. This unique puzzle combines a standard 3x3 cube with three surrounding brackets. Deciphering order and orientation of assembly are non-trivial. The solved puzzle has a unique appearance and displays beautifully.

We constructed In Brackets with solid Black Walnut pieces, individually beveled and very accurately glued. The Brackets are Yellowheart and feature reinforcing finger joinery on the corners. This puzzle has an excellent fit and finish, and I'm well pleased with how it turned out.

80 copies are available. Each puzzle is signed and dated. In Brackets ships assembled in an unsolved configuration.
